Vacation mini album intro page

Hi, everyone! I'm back to share some snaps of the journaling page to my beach vacation mini album. 

Journaling is something I struggle with, so I decided to write the story of our whole trip at the beginning of the album so that I could just use pictures for the rest of it. I typed of my journaling (left page) in a narrow-ish column (in the style of Ali Edwards!) and topped it off with a gold geotag chipboard piece. Done and done! So easy and I think it looks great!

On the right side, I used two journal cards from the Fancy Pants Happy Place collection. The card on the left is simply a filler. I filled in the journaling space on that card with one of the "delights" from the Maggie Holmes Shine collection that I also used on this layout. The card on the right is a handy calendar card from the Brag cards pack. It was dated 2015, so I added the "14" and wrote in "August" with alpha/number stickers from my stash. Then I filled in the dates and marked the days we were there. Easy peasy!

For the final pocket, I did some googling and found a tourist map of the area we were staying in and it happily matched my color scheme. So I printed it out on 4x6 and slipped it into the pocket as-is. Super simple!

So that's it for the intro page. I will definitely keep posting as I work my way through this album. I love the Happy Place collection for this project and can't wait to dig in even more! Thanks for reading!
